level of programs, social security, medicare, medicaid. but directly rebuking paul ryan and the 47% comment that got mitt romney in trouble. there may have been high-arching philosophical tones but there were also those tones. >> are you embracing the 47% comment? >> no, no, i wouldn't say, i don't know if it is fair to say it wasn't partisan at all. >> alex? >> this was not a speech where he stood up and said my mission is to leave office like a ronald reagan, being the president who turned around an economy, restored the confidence of a nation in its place in the world. no. he turned inward. and he said my mission here is to pick up the legacy of martin luther king and expand it as i think you've noted. that's not something he needs to work with republicans in congress for. it is something he doesn't need money for, by the way. it is, you're right, a moral agenda. but it is a very left of center argument that he made today about government. and republicans are going to go after him on that. this was a warrior president today. he fought the fight. >> there was a more aggressive to
the division the term by paul ryan with the makers and the takers. >> we do not believe that in this country, freedom is reserved for the lucky. or happiness for the few. we recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us, at any time, may face a job loss or a sudden illness or a home swept away in a terrible storm. the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not sap our initiative, they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> rick, that was the first time i've ever heard anybody make that fascinating defense of these safety net programs. wherein parents will risk anything. they'll spend all of their money as they make it on tuition bills for their kids, with the assumption of if worse comes to worse, i can make it on social security. >> yeah, that's right. and this was a -- you might say that this was an ideological speech in the best sense of that word. and the battle of ideas and of visions is one that liberals, progressives,

, but morally wrong and doing this with paul ryan for two years, the thoughts of bugetary issues, doesn't engage in ideas calls him names and questions his motives. second on the policy. he can't address the policy, our debt crisis, internationally all he said was ending wars. wars are won or lost. and if you were part of al-qaeda today. wonder is america going to be able to i can take the military actions for the futures that we face. >> greta: you're up. >> i was a little surprised. i thought he'd talk more about our debt situation and acknowledge the need tore economic growth and he really covered those in passing. but i think it was a pretty aggressive ideological speech if you parse it. but he's kind of effective in making left of center points in ways that sound inviting and harkened back to the founding fathers, but doing it to say here is what we believe and now times changed and we need collective action. he's advocating things that they wouldn't necessarily agreed with, a bigger role for government in aspects of our lives, but does it in a way that harkens back there. and we need to un
that's not what social security and medicare are, a jab not only at mitt romney but paul ryan, who he will be dealing with. >> when you have a guy who has bullied you in the schoolyard for four years and you finally fight the bully and you beat them like he just did in this election, you're not as afraid of the bully as you was or at least cautious. i think they bullied this president. he went to the mat and re-elected with a wider margin than george bush and saying the bullying is over. we're either going to fight or work together. >> the problem is both sides feel like they were bullied over the past four years and they've got to figure out how to work together over the next four years. i want to talk about yesterday with you quickly and open it up. it struck me as a son of the south, like you, son of the south, second inaugurations struck me as actually more remarkable moment in the history of race relations, because when the president was inaugurated the first time, we all stopped, kind of like everybody in america was collectively at time square looking up at the ticker that said
in williamsburg we saw one possibility, which was paul ryan and others within the republican party saying to the caucus, we can't win this fight publicly. let the debt ceiling go because we're going to be blamed for the economic fallout. let's push that down the road kick the can down the road, as they say, and try to get some budget out of the senate and try to get some real spending cuts in the next three months. so paul ryan and others within the caucus are seeing a longer game here than is this freshman senator from texas. >> but if you ask paul ryan what he wants to do on gun control, he would say, i don't want to do anything on gun control. you've talked to moderate republicans -- >> what about registration? >> the only thing they might do is something on registration. >> background checks. >> that's it. no idea that you're banning weapons. no chance. >> registration is the worst. >> put it on tape. 5 0% chance it passes. >> good because hunters need 30 bullets. >> if you've seen a single republican say they support that -- >> a democratic lobbyist last night work
